Happy Hour: Rossellini

Aug 25 2008 - 2:00pm

Sunny weekends in San Francisco are hard to come by. When I awoke last Saturday to clear-blue skies, I headed over to Bar Bambino [1], an Italian nook in the city with a new back patio.

There, I enjoyed the perfect warm-weather drink: a spin on sangria [2] that was refreshing and fruity without being overly cloying or too heavy on the alcohol. With one in hand, I imagined I was an effortlessly chic Italian woman. I snagged the recipe for the next real Summer day.

The cocktail calls for white wine (I'd recommend a Sauvignon Blanc [3], or any other dry white with mineral notes) as well as orange bitters [4], which can be found at large liquor stores. For the recipe, .
